GMDSS Renewal online registration


Please check GMDSS GOC renewal procedure for latest procedure. Below procedure is outdated !
Before going for GMDSS renewal online registration, please get a Bank demand draft from STATE BANK OF INDIA in favour of PAO (HQ), DOT payable at NEW DELHI. Some SBI ask for PAN CARD copy while making the DD, please do take PAN Card copy, to avoid end moment surprise !

Indian Maritime College did a brilliant tutorial detailing step by step procedure for doing GMDSS renewal online registration, hence I will not repeat it. However like DG Shipping profile registration has its own set of e-Samudra problems, GMDSS online registration too has few problems as detailed below

  1. GMDSS renewal online registration works with Internet Explorer
    GMDSS renewal online registration works only with Internet Explorer version lower than 10 (read 6, 7, 8 and 9). You can do what we mentioned in e-Samudra IE Problem or use compatibility mode by<ol class="clist" type="a]
  2. Press F12 to open Developer toolbar
  3. Click EMULATION
  4. Under Mode >> Document Mode change it to 8 or 9.
I found the issue after selecting the State of my residence. In newer Internet Explorer, City dropdown was not opening. It worked perfectly after I changed Document mode view to 9.
  • Options do not appear as shown in tutorial
    I followed registration tutorial link by IMC, but the side tab options after login was not the same as shown in the images. I simply logged out and login again and it worked perfectly as described.
  • GMDSS GOC detail may show wrong data
    After filling and searching my GMDSS GOC data, the returned details showed my name incorrectly, if some of your details are incorrect in the GOC data, never mind, remember you did not fill it, it was done by WPC guys.
    If you have applied for GMDSS renewal before, your online registration may show "under process". Please take a screen shot of the error and send the documents. Thanks to Joseph Tharakan for the solution at GMDSS GOC renewal issue.
  • On completion of GMDSS Renewal online registration you will be shown 2 options Receipt and Form. I kept the receipt for reference and took printout of the generated form and and sent it with my filled GMDSS renewal form.  GMDSS Renewal online registration
